What Is the Cost of Dental Crown ?
Cracks in the tooth
Back tooth which has had a root canal
Crowns are made outside of the mouth and then cemented or bonded onto the tooth to cover it and protect it from further damage. The most common material for dental crowns now are tooth coloured ceramics.
In the past, gold alloys were commonly used, but with modern ceramics now means we can get as good or better longevity while making something that will blend with the rest of the teeth.
At Plaza Dental here in Mackay, we have invested heavily in the most advanced CEREC technology. This allows us to make the vast majority of our crowns in 1 single appointment, saving our patients time, so they can get on with their day.
There are 3 main Ceramics we use at Plaza Dental depending on the indications
The teeth are then scanned using a 3D CEREC scanner, the crowns are designed and are milled from our high-tech milling machines. The Enamic crown then just needs to be polished and cleaned and is ready to be cemented. For the E-Max and Zirconia crowns, in addition to polishing and cleaning, they are glazed and fired in a ceramic furnace to reach full strength. This extra stage is what gives them their additional strength.
Zirconia and e-max crowns cost just under $1800, while Enamic crowns cost just under $1200. These fees reflect the relative times required to make each type of crown.
Which type of crown is best for you depends on the exact situation and may change from tooth to tooth within the same mouth.
